Am searching for any connections with a Peter Alois Hentges, his parents and siblings. I do know that he had at least 2 brothers...Nick(Nicolas?) and Joe(Joseph?)and that they alll resided in Minnesota at some point and time. Have been wondering if there are any connections to Hentges in Iowa?

I am writing because my g-g-g grandfather was Nicholas Hentges and my g-g grandmother was born in Iowa and the family later moved to Minnesota. (Luxembourg township in Midwest Minnesota) There seems to be quite a few connections between my Hentges and yours. If you can make a direct connection, please let me know and maybe it will increase our research odds!

Hi Holly, It was great to see someone had replied. I don't know if my Nick lived in that city but I have been told that parts of our family lived in Eden Vallry, MN. Do you have a family tree you could send as a text file? At this time I do not have a ged-com program.

Tabitha-I am sure now that there is a connection because my Hentges family not only lived in Luxembourg Township, but the town is named Eden Valley!!!!!!! Now if we can just get the information passed back and forth to each other, things will be wonderful! I need your email address so I can put it in my genealogy file for future reference. My email address is

I am really excited to hear from you and I will try to send you my information as soon as possible when I get your email address. It is great to finally find a connection!!!

Hello. My great-grandfather was Nicholas Raymond Hentges. He had a brother named Peter, a brother named Joseph, a sistr named Katherine, a sister named Elizabeth, a brother named Johnny who died very young in an accident and some other siblings that my grandpa didn't remember. He also had a sister named Margaret. I heard from my grandpa that Pete (Peter) died in his 40s in an accident and he was an oiler in MN. His parents were named Bernard and Mary. I hope this helps. Let me know. And if you have any more info on that side of the family, please send some my way.
